Science & Theology Discussion Group
Kirchliche Hochschule Wuppertal
This interdisciplinary group, in existence for many years, brings fifteen distinguished scientists, theologians, and clergy together to “explore fundamental issues in the current science and theology debate from the perspective of the history of German thought.” Topics include concepts of “critical realism” in comparison with insights of the philosophy of body, basic questions of the theology of creation in relation to time and space/word and light, God’s action through continuous creation, the mind/brain debate, and ethical issues in an age of technology. The society seeks new members including young scholars and potential leaders through designing and hosting public outreach events, advanced university seminars, conferences, and publications. Frequent meetings of the core discussion group for research and planning of events ensure effective outreach and success in inviting new scholars from the natural and human science to enhance group diversity and encourage leadership in the field.
